the truth shall set you free

It is one of my favorite sayings; a regular answer to “What shall I tell them?”

Describing my public speaking during political campaigns I recently told a friend that I never wrote out speaches. I did not practice in front of mirrors. I performed for no focus groups. I simply spoke the truth… from my heart.

That freed me from having to remember what I said on previous occasions. It is a good trick that came to mind with the three quotations that arrived in my e-mail box this morning from Liberty Quotes.


“The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between political parties either – but right through every human heart.”
— Alexander Solzhenitsyn
(1918-2008) Russian novelist, Soviet dissident, imprisoned for 8 years for critizing Stalin in a personal letter, Nobel Prize for Literature, 1970

“O, what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive!”
— Sir Walter Scott
(1771-1832) Scottish historical novelist, playwright, poet
Source:  “Marmion”, Canto VI, Stanza 17

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.”
— Thomas Paine
(1737-1809) US Founding father, pamphleteer, author
